    Which convertible to get

    Ive posted a similar thread to this before but i didnt actually get round to looking at a convertible with christmas,new year etc. Im looking to get a convertible within the next 2 weeks if possible. Ive been looking at mainly astra convertibles and missed out on one last week.

    Just wondering what convertible you guys have had experience with and what you would recomend. I will get finance for up to £4000 but if i find the right car then i will increase that to up to £5500. I am also only 19 so anything above insurance group 14 is out of the question.

    I have been looking at mainly astras, mx5's, mgtf's and z3's.

    Wow i do like that a lot, the only problem is its over 150 miles away from me as i live in the north east. What do you lot think of my chances of getting finance with me only being 19, i earn a decent wage of between £300-£400 a week and i have no outgoings really.

    I did a few insurance quotes for a 2.2 and it was around £1700 mark, i think if i was going to pay that much for insurance then i would have to get a turbo and pay the extra £200 or so, ive been looking at coupes but i just really fancy a convertible for some reason, a lot of my friends have had coupes and i just fancy something different.

    MX5 would be a bit quicker (comparing 1.8 - 1.8 ) would also be a nicer drive IMO + rear wheel drive.

    Though has the disadvantage of only 2 seats. So it depends what you want as your comparing 2 totally different cars.
